In a Day’s Work


Today was one of those days.


Sometimes, I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of questions I am asked in a very short period of time.  I mean, my brain can only proceses so much in a limited amount of time. My carrying capacity hurts.

Questions Today included (but were not limited to):

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
